12:58am
student debt. john: let's get real. all of the candidates think of themselves as freeloaders. but they are not. i am a libertarian in part because i see the false choice offered by political left and right, either government control over the economy or government control of our personal lives. democrats think it is income inequality. republicans think that the opposite is true. let them advocate moral behavior and let them give to charities but leave the government out of it. that is why i like gary johnson. >> if after four years we decide more war and more control and higher taxes are what you really want, you can always go back into office again. john: that would be good.
12:59am
what about drug use and poverty. let no one be coerced by government. beyond a small amount needed to fund a limited government that keeps us safe. do not let government forcibly take other people's money. most people think problems are things that are solved by law. they assume it is just laziness or stupidity of the other side's politicians that prevent government from solving our problems government is inefficient. and government is force. that is why it is better if government doesn't try to address most of life's problems. there is nothing the government can do that we cannot do better as free individuals and groups of individuals working together voluntarily. without big go
